Your P3 was assembled in Solihull, taken apart, boxed up, shipped to 
Calcutta, put back together in India, and then driven back to England 
overland before being shipped to the United States.  You're lucky 
ANYTHING was original by the time you got hold of it. Maybe that mirror 
got knocked off in old Bombay or Constantinople. But I'll bet the front 
suspension in your Federal 3500S is the same as every other 3500S that 
was imported into North America.

Unless you've taken that apart, too...
